MODIS false color image comparison between 11 April and 24 April 2011

 

A comparison of MODIS false color Red/Green/Blue (RGB) images from the SSEC MODIS Today site (above) shows the increase in areal coverage of flooding along the Red River of the North, from north of Grand Forks, North Dakota into southern Manitoba. Also evident is the melting of most of the snow cover across northeastern North Dakota, and the melting of portions of Devils Lake (snow and ice appear as cyan features on the false color images, while water has a darker blue appearance).
